Counter Culture: a way of life and set of attitudes opposed to or at variance with the prevailing social norm.

For every highlight in one’s life, there are moments and times when they were “wrong;” made the “wrong” choice, said the “wrong” thing, expressed themselves in the “wrong” way.

Too few times are we given the encouragement to question our humanity in a way that asks how our notions of right and wrong/ good and bad are bred. What we can determine—thankfully due to several hundred years of focused sociological and anthropological research— is that the weight of communal pressure and the desire for order and control is often the determining factor in governing what is appropriate for one’s community. So when mainstream standards of suitability and correctness are challenged, ignored and defied, you are left with the type of threat that causes fear, confusion and discomfort to those that cannot imagine a world outside of their own rigidly acceptable communal norms.

Chaffey College’s Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art has a semester of creative installations in the works. The first of two concurrent events is entitled Home ECOnomics. This is an exhibition that promises to “bring together artists who embrace the origins of what Home Ec was - a progressive interdisciplinary study with an emphasis on science as it applied to the individual, family and community,” as described by the exhibition’s press release.

Unbeknownst to me, the origins of home economics have much less to do with simply baking and much more to do with ecology, anthropology and sociology. It all makes sense really; the roots of the focus all relate to home stewardship, tending to the home; being an engineer, a seamstress, a biologist; and simply being a student of many studies and trades. The execution of this topic promises to be a lively one, with great regards to the curator of the event.

COUNTER CULTURES, an art exhibition featuring a variety of artistic mediums to convey the theme, will open Sept. 8 at Chaffey College's CAA Student Gallery. The show will revolve around art and actions that have effected and altered society through defiance.

We're on the hunt for a few more pieces to supplement the show. Some of the topics we'd like to examine are graffiti, skateboarding, social activism and advocacy, illicit activities, LGBT culture, feminism, hardcore music culture, prison/inmate culture, narcotic culture, varying ethnic traditions and cultures-- any and everything that deters from traditional, standardized or arguably acceptable American societal norms. Let your imagination run wild.

Mil-Tree’s “The Art Of War” was presented at Chaffey College in the Art Building’s Student Gallery March 12th from 12pm - 2pm. The show was curated by Rebecca Trawick, the director and curator of Chaffey’s Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art. The show’s original opening was in Joshua Tree at the Radio Free Joshua Tree Listening Lounge turned art gallery and spoken word salon on October 25th, 2013. It was part of the MBCAC Highway 62 Art Tours co-produced by Mil-Tree and RFJT. It was the brainchild of Carey Hayes and Tami Wood and curated by Mil-Tree’s Paula Jeane. The project successfully fulfilled the mission statement of Mil-Tree:

It is our mission to bring together veterans, active-duty military, and civilians in order to help each other to address the wounds of the soul through communication and art.

Through Mil-Tree, diverse people in the community come together to increase mutual understanding and respect, and are provided with safe opportunities to express, help process, and support the healing of soul wounds, especially those of war, through the power of storytelling, speak-outs, healing retreats, art, music, movement, and nature.

Unruly: un • ru • ly

– adjective

1. not submissive or conforming to rule; ungovernable; turbulent; intractable; refractory; lawless

Unruly is a new exhibit at the Wignall Museum at the Rancho Cucamonga Chaffey College campus, showcasing the work of ten deliberately disruptive American female artists. Curator Roman Stollenwerk describes their work, collectively, as “challeng[ing] the parameters of feminine behavior.” The artists’ geographies are as varied as the media in which they work: Nevadan Elizabeth Jackson's election-year street photography project of bound photos shares space with Southern California Jessica Wimbly's collection of mixed media commentary around issues of race and the art world. NY-based Rachel Mason's conceptual performance art is presented on a large screen that emphasizes its disruptiveness: “Wall,” which chronicles her nail-biting free-climb of the side of UCLA's Broad Art building (an act that got her temporarily expelled as an undergraduate). Miamian Antonia Wright's videos of her performance art grace yet another wall of the Wignall.
